San Jose State University Library Services: Results of the Spring 1980 Faculty and Student User Surveys.
The results of two surveys, designed to provide data for use in the planning of a new library at San Jose State University, include student and faculty perceptions of the adequacy of present library services in fulfilling research and information needs. Specific areas investigated are hours and security, reference and information services, library instruction, circulation services, periodicals and newspapers, the book collection, and media services. Findings also reflect the perceptions and needs of different faculty and student populations--i.e., class or rank, sex, age, ethnic background, years of attending or teaching, school, full or part-time status, and class attendance or teaching time. The characteristics of frequent and infrequent SJSU library users are also reported, and the survey questionnaires for both groups are appended. (Author/RAA)
